Ride for Your L1fe
In 2012 Team Novo Nordisk, the world’s only all-diabetes professional cycling team, was formed. Living with type 1 diabetes means that on top of racing against the best cyclists in the world, these riders need to manage daily insulin injections to control blood glucose levels. How does that integrate into the already challenging world of professional cycling? Ride for Your L1fe follows the team behind the scenes throughout the 2021 season, filming them privately at home and experiencing what a diagnosis has meant to an entire family, to document their fight to show what’s possible with type 1 diabetes. With full access to riders, mechanics, management, nutritionists, and doctors, Ride for Your L1fe documents an inspiring battle against a chronic condition and the prejudices along for the ride. The result is a film about the nuances of life, about dreaming big and believing in yourself.
